Chao Ta Bee Hoon

$10.00 · 17 Reviews

Properly known as JB Fried Bee Hoon on their menu, Seng Kee’s rendition of this pan fried vermicelli, hands down, beats any other Chaota Bee Hoon I’ve ever had BY A MILE.
They give a proper crisp char to the top, and beneath that crown hides a variety of seafood, sprouts and fragrant bits of fried egg. Do it justice and savour it with the sambal chilli & lime served on the side.
Opens all day and till the wee hours (4am), fantastic supper joint without having to queue for such hearty midnight munchies.

10bucks/serve (easily feeds 4 if you order other dishes too)

This place is well know for their kidney mee sua, but the other dishes here are good as well; like the Chao Ta Bee Hoon. The charred bee hoon is super crispy and it comes with prawns, bean sprouts, fish cake & egg. Pair it with the sambal chili & lime for the best taste experience.

Chao Ta Bee Hoon ($10)

One of the rare times where you actually relish having chao ta (burnt) food 😂. Have been wanting to compare this version by Seng Kee @seng_kee_black_chicken with JB Ah Meng's for quite a while. This had bean sprouts, small prawns and slices of fishcake added and the bee hoon was definitely more chao ta than jb ah meng's and I just loved munching on the chao ta bits! I think jb ah meng may edge this out by a bit because their addition of cuttlefish slices flavours the bee hoon better and the bee hoon itself is tastier.


Fried rice vermicelli, crispy on one side. Generous amount of fried egg, prawns and bean sprouts may be found below the crisp.

Nice texture to the tongue.

Have it with the sambal Chilli provided.

Finally made it to Seng Kee! Had both the mee sua and the crispy bee hoon and between the two? No fight, the WINNA is Chao Ta Bee Hoon! 😜

Light crisp around the edges, strong char that made each mouth a delight and that limed up chilli added even more to each bite. Dig underneath and you'll find crunchy bean sprouts, small chunks of prawn and thin slivers of fish cake. Shiooook!

24 years of my life and no one told me about seng kee until last week.
good friends I have huh 😊😊
